Active supermassive Black Holes and their jets - that's my field of research in Astronomy. In particular, I am searching for pairs of supermassive black holes that might merge in the future and emit gravitational waves.

 

With the help of Very Long Baseline Interferometry I am studying acitve Black Holes (e.g., M87) and their stories.

  • I am teaching at the University of Heidelberg. The subject is "Black Holes and other Unsolved Problems in Astrophysics". Please find the current dates here.
  • For PhD-projects please check here.

In case there is a bit of time and space without science, I like to paint with lots of colour.
